I’d be concerned about the lace and the white showing through a bias cut satin dress. Especially with the stripey parts. Bias cut satin is very unforgiving, so I would look for something nude and seamless.

elliex :  I love this shapewear, and I have it, I find it does dig a little into my thighs, but I also have large thighs. As PP said I would worry about white, depending on how thick the material in your dress it. I’ve worn it with a satin 50s style dress, and the shapewear doesn’t show, but the material on around my hips and thighs is also big and flowy.

elliex :  I’d maybe order both sizes, and return the one that doesn’t fit. The band is quite smooth cause it has the anti roll plastic stuff, so it doesn’t dig in too much. I’m plus size so I’m much more squishy and more likely to look like I had leg indents. I ordered a smaller size rago, and it sucks me in so much, but it does indent my legs, which isn’t an issue for the style of dresses I wear though, I’d maybe take the larger size if I were you.

elliex :  Try pin up shops, most of the ones in Canada sell rago shapewear it’s popular with that crowd.
